    The first day of the airshow saw, among other events, a demonstration flight by Russia’s latest fighter jet, the fifth generation T-50, also known as PAK FA, touted as a warplane that will provide a worthy adversary to the sophisticated US F-22 Raptor fighter jet.

    As for the second day of the show, its main event was the signing of agreement between the Russian Federal Agency Roskosmos and the European Space Agency on the joint launch of their mission to Mars, scheduled for 2018.
